There are large gardens in the Alcazar, consisting of a series of patios next to the main building and then a larger area containing fountains, topiary, summer houses and a maze, amongst other things. Even in Autumn when no garden, except perhaps one designed around autumnal colours, is at its best, there is beauty here and over all the pervasive scent of jasmine.

Superb, that movement, I can hear him sweep in that beautiful set ! And now that you say that it smells of jasmine, it's another cool sensation bursting through*

The look and aroma must make this place very attractive. The picture certainly makes it look that way. I appreciate the effort to keep the area cleaned and debris free.

I love this image . Without a man sweeping the road, it would be only nice shot, with a man - it is fabulous !!!

Good evening, Grouser,
a very interesting statement on this beautiful recording. The man will never be unemployed. He has something to do something every day. Dear greetings Christel

Very good shot, my friend. I like very much the composition with the man keeping clean the "albero" (the name of this yellow sand, typical of Sevilla)

Est-ce pour effacer les pas des visiteurs ?...
L'image serait plus forte sans l'autre personne oisive au fond...
Que la lumière baigne tes pas...
